This is another really great reminder of what a rich lifestyle we have in the U.S. and how very much we take for granted. The first bit of the story was somewhat slow-moving, but I really enjoyed the story and hearing the African narrator read it in his very enthusiastic way. African English has a delightfully soft quality that made the audiobook a lot more fun than just reading it would have been. I always love a story of the self-made man, and this one allowed me to rediscover my many riches. It's a nice, inspiring read.
